  • Overview

    The Swiss canton of Ticino is like no other and is remarkable in that it blends alpine landscapes with Italian flair. Proudly described as Switzerland’s answer to the Mediterranean, Ticino enjoys hot sun-filled summers, equal to of any Italian destination.

    Whether you are trekking along the mountain sides or taking in the delights of Lake Maggiore or Lake Lugano, you are likely to encounter native Italian speakers and characteristic Italian good-living. Fine wine and finer cuisine can be sampled at many of the cafes and restaurants that dot the palm-fringed waterfront promenades and baroque piazzas of this Italian-infused canton. To the north, quaint hamlets and medieval castles punctuate the dense forests and snow covered peaks of the Swiss Alps.
